How Rakesh Protected His Family with Just Rs 8,000 a Year?

Let’s Take the Case of Rakesh to Understand How He Protected His Family with just Rs 8000 a Year:

Rakesh works as a software engineer in an IT Firm. He is married and has a child of 4 years. His wife is a homemaker and his kid studies in a prestigious school at Bengaluru.

Rakesh earns Rs 70,000 a month and had availed a term insurance plan of Rs 1 Crore; to cover financial liabilities and safeguard his family financially on an untimely demise. He wanted to leave a legacy to his family.

He availed an online term insurance plan at the age of 27 years; just after he got married.

He opted for this payout as his family was not adept in handling finances. As this was an online term insurance plan, he only had to pay a yearly premium of Rs 8,000 to avail adequate coverage and secure family’s financial future.

Sadly, Rakesh died at the age of just 32 in a major road accident. In this state of emotional grief, his family was unable to figure out how to take care of the family finances. Managing daily expenses, education and marriage of their son and paying back loans; fell to his wife.

Fortunately, there was a term life plan to back her up in these difficult times. She received a lump sum of Rs 50 Lakh which helped take care of all the immediate needs and her son continued to enjoy quality education. All loans were paid off.  His family was able to manage daily expenses from the monthly payouts.
